Monochromatic matplotlib figures


December 14, 2021

Sometimes we don’t need fancy colors for our figures. Sometimes publishers want clear figures on grayscale prints. So, I made a python module to help applying monochromatic colorscheme on matplotlib figures. Please check it out here.

Basically I provided an abstraction layer on matplotlib.plt in such a way there is only one imposed color and different hatches for variation. These are few examples of them:

Bar plot

Line plot
